Today we are going to explain how to see the 2018 World Cup on the Internet. This is the 21st FIFA World Cup, which will take place this year in Russia. The championship will officially start on June 14 with the opening match between Russia and Saudi Arabia, and will give us four weeks of competition until the final to be held on July 15.
We are going to tell you, on the one hand, how to watch the World Cup online for free and totally legal. The rights are all Mediaset, so it will be a fairly simple and unified experience. We will also tell you how to use Google to closely monitor all the information related to the sporting event, as well as the live results of any match.
How to watch the online world
Just as in the football league we find a lot of alternatives to watch some or other matches, the rights of broadcasting of the entire World Cup in Spain have been taken by Mediaset. That means we can follow all the matches on their T5, Cuatro and BeMad channels, both on television and on the Internet.
Mediaset will also be responsible for broadcasting all the World Cup 2018 matches online through its streaming platform, MiTele.es. In addition to seeing them on computers and laptops with the web, you can also consume the games on your mobile devices through official MiTele applications for Android and iOS.
In order to watch the games, you only have to enter the web or the app and enter the Live tab. Once in this section, you must find the channel that is broadcasting the game and click on it to start watching it.
In addition to the MiTele application, Mediaset has also created another app specific to the world, where they will centralize all information and live broadcasts to watch streaming. The application is called Mediaset FIFA World Cup, and you have it available on both Android and iOS.
If you plan to watch a game on a mobile device, you should take into account that live broadcasts can consume a significant amount of data, up to more than one giga per game depending on the quality of the retransmission. Therefore, it is advisable that you try to connect through a WiFi network or make sure you have a sufficiently broad rate to be able to afford it.
In Google you can follow the results
If you are not going to be able to see the games but you still want to be informed online, Google makes it easy for you to see all the results from the search engine without having to enter any specific website. It will do so with a special module that will be shown when you do searches related to the World Cup.
All you have to do is enter Google from your browser or mobile and look for terms like “World Cup”, “World Cup Russia 2018” or similar, the name of the selection you want to get information from or something similar. By doing so, Google will show you a table with the next matches and other options organized in tabs to see the news, the rankings or the matches of the knockout phase. You can even follow the matches live.
If you do searches related to a selection, such as Spain Mundial 2018 , you will see a very similar box but with all the content related exclusively to the selection on which you made the search. If you do it while the selection is playing, you will be shown a live score so you do not lose track of what happens in the field.
